New staff members provide support in varied roles

As support for School of Art staff continues to strengthen, we’re excited to welcome four new staff members joining us in new and re-envisioned roles across the school:

Robin Sarno, our new financial team lead, began her role in the business office in October. This new role reimagines what had previously been the senior administrative assistant for financial affairs. Sarno has over 30 years of experience at Yale. In December, Ramona Milardo-Ward joined as the new senior administrative assistant supporting the dean’s office. In this new role, Milardo-Ward supports Dean Pinder and Associate Dean Anoka Faruqee, assisting with student opportunities, Interdepartmental Day, and other all-school initiatives. 

Finn Henry also joins us as the project coordinator for CARE, DEI, and community projects—a new role provided by the president’s office to support expanding DEIB programming for the school and the university. Henry began her new position in January, and she’ll be working closely with director for sustainable equity and inclusion Dannika Kemp-Avent on DEI programming, while also supporting Dean Pinder and the Yale Committee for Art Recognizing Enslavement (CARE). Elizabeth Landau also started in January as the first full-time assistant director of development and alumni relations. In this role, Landau will focus on alumni engagement, stewardship, and increasing philanthropy to the School of Art’s annual fund.
